Hello All,

Is there a way to add more than 1 subform to a main form? I have a couple of tables I would like to include as subforms under my main form entries and while I can get 1 subform entered with no problem I can't figure out if it's possible to add more.

He, you can do so:

  • open your form in Edit mode, open Form navigator and make right click on MainForms > New > Form.
  • make right click on it and rename NewSubForm
  • make right click on NewSubForm > Properties
  • on tab Data of window Form Properties choose Table as Content type and your add table as Content
  • complete fields Link master file and Link slave field
  • open the window Add fields
  • make click on More controls > Table control and draw a new grid
  • complete the Table element wizard

Now you have a new added sub form.

I tried that but at step "complete fields" I would like to link the slave field to another (the first 1 created by the wizard) slave field but am only given the option to go from master file to slave field.... Is there a way around this? I see no option to change the master file to anything different.

in the form navigator, the various forms will appear in a familiar object tree. Click and drag the SUBFORM objects to be children of the desired subform, and click and drag controls to be on the right SUBFORM as well.
